Wow, thanks for this one Jeanno ... it's beautiful!
I've put in a time off request at work for the last week in May. I'm Hoping to attend The Face and Body Art International Convention in Orlando. It's such a busy time of the year for us that even with months of advanced notice, my time off request might not be approved but I've got my fingers crossed!
It is a four day convention, jam packed with classes and workshops taught by many of the most experienced artists in their field. Here's the link to the website if anyone wants to take a look at the photo galleries. Cool stuff is found there!
The best part about this years convention is the theme ... A Mid Summer Night's Dream. I'm so excited at the thoughts of watching the masters and learning to create fantasy faces of the characters from Shakespeare's Fairy Kingdom.
On last night of the convention, there will be A Mid Summer Night's Dream Enchanted Ball where all will attend adorning there most imaginative fairy art and costumes and will celebrate until the wee hours of the morning.
So ... now you know why I've been searching for fairy tale art this week. Thanks again to all of you that went out of your way to help with my search. I'm still not sure I've found the exact illustrations I'm looking for but you have given me a really good place to start.
Suzypwr ... if you can't find the book, maybe you can remember the name so I can try to find one.
Michael ... if you happen to run across that illustrated folio you mentioned I would love to see it. Scan, post, send ... oh, and did I mention that the convention is in Orlando? Maybe I'll try to take you up on that rain check for lunch! lol
